shrimp delight on a snow day

Monday night, off season, it was shrimp night. Nice selection, 6 different shrimp meals. We tried 2 different ones both were delicious.

We have been at this restaurant on every trip to Rehoboth in the last two years since a friend first sent us there and we are always impressed with the fresh, heathy, creative, and DELIOUS food as well as the wonderful service and relaxing, casual atmosphere. If you are a "foodie" this is your place!

We have visited this quaint restaurant on four occasions with equally high marks for every aspect...the chefs are extremely creative in blending the finest, freshest ingredients into a memorable meal...the staff are prompt and courteous with any need. They have specials throughout the week ...crab cakes are the ultimate as well as the fried oysters and salmon. OMG the best... More

Wholesome breakfast menu and compelling middle-eastern sandwhiches and tapas However, the ambiance, friendly and resposive service, and quiet - neighborhood feel of the Lewes location (now closed) is not present in Rehoboth. If you try Azafran (Rehoboth) take your noise-cancelling earphones and don't expect to be able share conversation. Ear-shattering acoustics. Unresponsive service.

Whether you choose from the tapas menu or the large plate menu, the food is delicious! So many good choices that it was really hard for to narrow it down. A friend and I chose four tapas to share. Plenty of food that was uniquely offered. Service was good and friendly. Put this one on your list when you don't... More

One of my favorite breakfast spots in town. The Spanish-Med influence is a nice change from standard breakfast fare, the Jamon (ham) is slightly sweet yet savory and the breakfast potatoes are notable, too.

I have to start by saying this is of my favorite restaurant in Rehoboth Beach, especially on Wednesdays during the summer when the chef, Richard, prepares paella over the grill on the back patio. But summer is over, and my wife and I went for a quiet off-season dinner last night. We considered ordering and sharing 6 tapas, but the... More

We enjoyed Café Azafran in Lewes a few years ago so were glad to see it had a location in Rehoboth on our recent visit there. We went there for lunch immediately after arriving on Sunday. The décor is very pleasant--beachy but with Middle Eastern accents (mostly in the cushions), and they have an interesting menu of tapas, salads, and... More

The food was fresh and delicious. The best meal I've eaten so far in 2014. My dinner was ginger and lime shrimp served with saffron rice and seasonal vegetables and everything was perfect. I didn't have room for dessert but those looked delicious too. The staff was outstanding.

Wonderful food, service, and atmosphere. Crab cakes all meat with delicious seasoning and sides. Tappas dishes were unusually generous and well prepared.
